GOP leaders in Washington may be timid, but Republican state legislators are taking the lead on many issues. A Texas GOP Representative has introduced a bill making body scanners illegal. He has 18 co-sponsors.
(The Lone Star Report)- A freshman Representative filed a bill to penalize airport body scanner operators: Including TSA agents...

The bill, HB 1938, makes it a civil penalty for anyone working in a locally owned airport to install or operate whole-body imaging equipment -- "including a device that uses backscatter x-rays or millimeter waves, that creates a visual image of a person's unclothed body and is intended to detect concealed objects," the bill read.
The penalty is capped at $1,000 per day per violation.
